Report – Rafa Benitez Signing May Be On His Way Out This Summer



Newcastle have three right-backs on the books in Javier Manquillo, DeAndre Yedlin, and Emil Krafth. With Manquillo set to leave this summer when his contract expires, there will likely be another one brought in this summer.

There were reports last week that the Saudi-backed consortium had inquired about Barcelona right-back Emerson, who is currently on loan at Real Betis.

Like Manquillo, DeAndre Yedlin’s time at Newcastle may also be drawing to an end after four years.

His contract runs out next summer, and he most likely is not in line for a new deal. So the new ownership group could look to offload the 26-year-old this summer to get something for him.


The Chronicle have published some comments from American journalist Paul Tenorio, who writes for the Athletic.

Tenorio was recently on ESPN when he said the following about Yedlin:

“DeAndre Yedlin is going to look for a move from Newcastle.

“The question is where is he going to go?

“This is a prime example of a player who is on a hefty salary on a team’s books.

“What type of team can afford him, teams in Holland, Germany or the Premier League.”

According to the Chronicle, Yedlin had hoped to open contract discussion with Newcastle. However, Lee Charnley has frozen all negotiations while the league is suspended during the coronavirus pandemic.

We suspect the new ownership group will restart negotiations once the takeover is confirmed. There are a few players that they will want to retain like Matty Longstaff, whose contract has only a few months to run.

There’s also Isaac Hayden and Fabian Schar, whose deals will have only one year remaining on them this summer. We don’t expect DeAndre Yedlin, Christian Atsu, or Dwight Gayle to be part of future plans and are unsure about Ciaran Clark as well.

    KK coming in at 9-1 for next manager is a strange one, i think it will be more likely an Ambassador role for him, would be ideal for us , could,nt think of anyone better to big the club up.

    If it as the Toon I’d be gutted, so I sympathise a bit. Same breath though, I’d be looking at the next season as a fan and saying.. “Did it once we can do it again!”

    The problem with all these pundits going on sky and saying they think Bruce should be given a chance if the takeover happens, realistically what else can they say?

    We’re not in the relegation zone like many expected so by that metric, he’s done a decent job. I’m sure what they all say and what they actually think are vastly different.

    If Poncettino arrives with £19m in his back pocket where will he live ?
    What’s the most expensive house in the area at the moment or will he just buy Gosforth. All of it.

    There have been some great manager and assistant duos over the years.
    Clough -Taylor
    Mercer – Allison
    Guardiola -Estiarte
    Mourinho -Faria

    So why not Keegan – Shearer.

    Shearer has been very very quite on this takeover. Just saying.

    They should call the league as it stands, scrap relegation and promote two (should realistically stop any potential legal challenges).

    Then next season they should either stomach the extra 4 games or scrap the League Cup for a year to compensate.

    Using the plan I formulated, see last thread, teams would still be paid in accordance to current position, so Liverpool, wouldn’t lose financially, plus they’d start next season with whatever points gap they currently have, so can’t complain there and as there’d be no Champions League for 20/21, they wouldn’t miss out there either. There would be no relegation, so the bottom teams get a chance to fight their way out over the season, and the formula would be repeated through all the leagues, so Leeds and W. Brom start next season 1st and 2nd with points in the bag.

    To me it seems the most logical and importantly safest way to proceed, while not massively penalising anyone. Liverpool might argue they didn’t get the Championship, but they’d start the season with such a big points gap, they’d only have themselves to blame if they cocked it up.

    CAG, I used to live in the old garth 6 opposite the bus terminus, moved there when I was 12 in ’67’ when the houses were brand new with flat roofs and just up the road was Woolco, an, amazing shop for its time it had everything.
    I’ve noticed there’s still a lot of the original families still living there which I suppose says a lot for the town

    Liverpool won’t do next season what they did this!
    It’s never easy defend you title let alone the way they “won” this season.
    I think the PL have to give it to them, but god knows what they do about promotion and relegation!
